Ever since building my Voron 0.1, I've been trying to find a good mount for a raspberry pi camera. That said, most solutions I have found are a bit too conspicuous for my taste (i.e. they stick out into the tophat area), with no direct line of sight to the nozzle.
That's why I've decided to design my own and I've found a nice spot towards the top of the left z-extrusion with just enought clearance. It also offers good visibility of the nozzle & bed, extremely easy mounting, and great cable management!
Let me know what you think!
- The flex cable that comes with the camera module will be too short for this mod if your Raspberry Pi is located towards the bottom left of the electronics compartment (as per the manual). You can either purchase a 300mm / 12 in" flex cable or re-locate the Raspberry Pi towards the top of the compartment.
- Clearnace is quite tight (see one of the attached images), so I'd highly recommend that you check for inteference before commencing any prints. You can do so by moving the x-axis by hand along the back of the print bed. I'd also suggest that you check for any stray hotend wires so they don't snag on the camera
- Material choice is up to you, but if you're an enclosure (as I do), I'd highly recommend you print this model using ABS.
- The focus distance on the camera is usually set a too far out of the factory, resulting in a slightly blurry image. It is suggested that you adjust the focus ring on the camera to get a better image (not sure about warranty however).
